Accept reality and adjust.

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus” Philippians 2:5, NKJV.

At 3 am this morning, my youngest daughter decided she would wake up and stay awake for hours. I know by now if we’re not able to get her to go back to sleep, it’s going to be a very long night. So, I turn on the tv and get out some snacks and let her play until she wears her little self out and is ready to fall asleep again. Getting angry and frustrated serves no purpose at all, so I change and adjust my attitude. Well, she stayed up for three hours! She played, tried to learn to walk, and climbed on and off the bed, and when I saw that she was tired, I held her, and she fell asleep. After having six children, I’ve learned by now to accept reality and adjust.

Most often, our anger and frustrations are a result of trying desperately to change someone or something we can not change. The sooner we accept reality and adjust our attitude, the better off we will be. God will help you accept the reality of what you cannot change in someone. He will help you see the bigger picture so your attitude can adjust. He will give you wisdom, and His wisdom will provide you with a load of grace.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” Maya Angelou

Prayer: Father God, I ask that you help me to accept what I cannot change. Help me to change my attitude and how to deal with challenging situations. I receive your wisdom and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  6. This is powerful in so many areas! I found myself struggling to deal with people because I wanted them to move and think how I wanted.
    My Lord stepped into my heart and said “if you want to be accepted as you, you must do the same”. Since then I work on me and dealing with people the way they are. This devotional spoke volumes to me.
